DIGITAL IMAGES – FAQ’s

Do I own the digital images?

If the digital images are included on your initial contract then yes, you will own a copy of the images and have the right to share and reproduce them as many times as you like, for as long as you like. However, the Copyright remains with the photographer Tom Millington unless otherwise agreed in writting. Tom reserves the right to use the images in the ongoing promotion of his business unless you have requested otherwise.

Should I copy the digital images?

Yes. Although the USB flash memory drives that digital images are supplied on should not deteriorate for many years, to prevent unexpected permanent loss you should make multiple copies of the images as soon as possible. Your USB drive should be kept in its protective box in a dark, dry and cool place.

How long do you keep digital images for?

Digital images are kept on file for as long as possible so it is likely that you can obtain the high or medium-resolution digital images from your wedding or family photoshoot, no matter how long ago it was. Although reasonable care has been taken to preserve the images, there is no binding agreement to do so once an initial contract has been fulfilled. Click here to read more about image archives.
